Wednesday Forum,
September 30th, 7pm

“Immigration & the Election:
How Results Will Affect Our Communities”

Featuring:
  • Trinity University Professor David Spener
  • Migrant Center Executive Director Sara Ramey
  • A special guest immigrant from Guatemala.
Have questions about the candidates’ immigration platforms? Want to know how COVID-19 is affecting immigrants? Are you curious about the Administration’s most recent immigration policy changes? Join us on Zoom September 30 from 7:00pm – 8:30pm to learn how the results of the 2020 elections will affect both documented and undocumented immigrants, as well as U.S. citizens across the nation.
     This conversation will look at the main issues of the day and what Trump and Biden plan to do to address them.
     This is a non-partisan discussion where all viewpoints are welcome. Due to the politically charged nature of the elections we ask that all participants make an extra effort to be respectful and patient with others during our discussion

Pub Theology with the Quakers

February 5th, 2020

Pub Theology is a group devoted to interreligious dialogue and discussions on current affairs. Hosted each week by Pastor Gavin Rogers (Travis Park United Methodist Church — in the white & stripe jacket above) and Bekah McNeel (Christianity Today), it meets every Wednesday from 7-9 at the Friendly Spot Ice House from 7 – 9pm.

On February 5th, Gavin invited members of Friends Meeting to come talk about our tradition, our practices, and our ways of being in the world.  Seventeen of us came for a 2-hour discussion with about 40 others from various religious and non-religious traditions.  It was a great discussion.
